In this exciting seventh entry in Thomas Perry's Jane Whitefield series, Jane spirits James Shelby, a man unjustly convicted of his wife's murder, out of the criminal court building in downtown Los Angeles-but the price of Shelby's freedom is high.


What the Critics Say

"Anyone who has read Perry knows the anticipatory pleasure that comes just from holding a new book with his name on the cover. Fans of Jane, last seen in Runner, will enjoy this elegantly written tale of pursuit and revenge." (Library Journal)

Very Graphic

Would you ever listen to anything by Thomas Perry again?

Yes, I love Thomas Perry as an author, but this book was very dark, very graphic in image.
The image and details presented in the torture process was horrible. It is not necessary to go into so much detail.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joyce Bean?

The narrator was good

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

After you get past the chapters of torture, the book is a typical Thomas Perry novel that keeps you involved in the story.

Any additional comments?

Don't read this book if you have a weak stomach; the torture details are to graphic, it is not needed for this story. It ruined the book and made me think twice about reading a Thomas PERRY NOVEL AGAIN.

- Paula "Tell us about yourself! I like clean romances and fantasy. The happily ever after is for me"

Non-stop action all the way

Would you consider the audio edition of Poison Flower to be better than the print version?

I love audio and I love print. Can't say for sure which is better.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

This was definitely a rocket ride from the beginning. I don't want to spoil the book for anyone. Jane starts out moving fast, and never slows down.

What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

Joyce is very good in this series and she is Jane's voice that I hear in my head when I re-read the stories.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen in one sitting. I'm retired and have the time. I stayed up VERY late. It was worth it.

Any additional comments?

If you have never read any other Jane Whitefield books, DO NOT START with this one. It brings in characters and situations from earlier books. As a series reader I loved it, but it would not make sense to someone who wasn't.
Start at the beginning with Vanishing Act and come forward.
